Bacillus Coagulans (BC)
The word “Coagula” comes from the Latin words “Coeurlus”, which means blood clotting factor, and “Glaustrus”, meaning white blood cell. BC is a bacteria that lives in your intestines. It helps with digestion and promotes healthy digestive system. Bacteria are beneficial because they help maintain a healthy intestinal environment.
BC is also known as Bacillus Coagulans or Bacillus Coagulin. The genus name Bacillus refers to its common name, Bacillus Coagulans. Other names include: Coagulus, Coeliacus, Clostridium, Coliforme and Fecalibacterium. The species name Coagulinis refers to the fact that it belongs to the family of coagulation factors called coagulins. These coagulins are involved in the regulation of platelet aggregation and thrombosis.
What is Bacillus Coagulans?
BC is a bacterium that exists naturally in the human body. It is one of the most abundant microorganisms in our intestines. There are two types of BC: Enterococcus faecalis and Eubacterium rectale. Both types live together and interact with each other to keep us healthy.
BC can be found in the soil and on plants. It is not known just how many types of bacteria exist. However, only a few species have been studied. The number of known types of bacteria is sure to increase as more are discovered. So far there are probably more than twenty-five thousand strains (varieties) of this bacterium.
Most of the strains have not yet been studied, identified and tested for their benefits. There are many beneficial strains of this bacteria just waiting to be discovered.
Benefits of this Bacillus Coagulans
1. It is a Probiotic
Probiotics are friendly or beneficial bacteria. They are also known as “friendly germs”. They live in your digestive tract and help keep it healthy by crowding out unfriendly germs. The foods that contain them are known as “probiotic foods”. These friendly bacteria help keep your digestive system running smoothly.
They also make some vitamins for you and crowd out unfriendly germs.
2. Helps In Digestion
The friendly bacteria in your digestive tract break down the food you eat so that your body can absorb it. When these friendly bacteria are present, undigested food does not sit in the intestines and ferment. It moves through quickly and lets you have regular bowel movements without discomfort.
3. Supports your immune system
The friendly bacteria in your body make an enzyme called disaccharidase. This enzyme breaks down certain sugars that would otherwise damage the cells that line your colon. It also helps you absorb nutrients from your food and fight infection.
4. Makes some vitamins for you
These friendly bacteria also make some B-vitamins for you. These vitamins are important for maintaining your health. They help your body respond to stress and help your nervous system function properly.
The friendly bacteria in your intestines also make biotin, another B-vitamin. Your body needs this vitamin to maintain a healthy hair, skin and nails. It also helps promote growth and build new cells.
5. Can help you lose weight
The friendly bacteria in your digestive tract help keep your body’s metabolism running smoothly. When friendly bacteria are present, your body absorbs less food but still gets the energy it needs. You also feel more satisfied after eating so you eat less.
The friendly bacteria in your small intestine also makes some fatty acids for you. These fatty acids help break down fat and cholesterol in your digestive system. This can keep blood cholesterol from building up in your arteries. Keeping your blood cholesterol levels low can lower your risk for heart disease.
6. Can help treat diarrhea
One strain of friendly bacteria in particular, Lactobacillus acidophilus, can help reduce the number of trips you make to the bathroom. It works by changing the pH (how acidic something is) of your intestine and slowing the movement of material through your digestive tract.
7. Other benefits
The friendly bacteria in your body can also help with other health conditions such as eczema, allergies, and atopic dermatitis.

Take one capsule daily on an empty stomach for one month. After the first month, you may take 1 capsule every other day to maintain results.
Probiotic Pearls are unlike other probiotics, they are able to survive the harsh environment of the stomach and continue to flourish in the small and large intestines. The high amount of good bacteria helps keep the bad bacteria in check and prevents bad bacteria from over-populating.
Most probiotics don’t make it past the stomach because they are coated with minerals that the good bacteria feed off of. The minerals eventually deplete and allow the acid in the stomach to break down the capsule, thus releasing all the good bacteria at once. This flood of good bacteria is then quickly eliminated from the body, having only been able to do its work for a very short period of time.
Probiotic Pearls’ special coating prevents this from happening. The coating allows the capsule to travel all the way through the stomach and past the digestive acids and into the small intestines, where the contents can be slowly released over several hours.
This steady release allows the pearls to keep a hold on to most of their bacteria so they can continue working in the intestines, where over 500 million good bacteria call home! And the best part is, since it’s a slow release, you only have to take 1 capsule a day!
Most probiotics on the market today only contain around 4 strains of bacteria at very low amounts. Probiotic Pearls got their name because they have 8 strains of bacteria at higher amounts for better overall coverage.
Most other probiotics on the market don’t even come close to having the right amount of bacteria needed to replenish your body’s needs every day. Most people are going to waste their money buying these products because their small intestines aren’t going to have anywhere near the correct amount of good and bad bacteria every day to keep it balanced.
Most people’s intestines only have around 500 million good and 500 million bad bacteria. Taking just about any other probiotic, you’re still going to be 500 million short every day. That’s why most people need to take 2-4 tablets a day just to get the right amount of bacteria into their bodies. And most of those products aren’t coated, so all those bacteria are going to be destroyed in the stomach.
If you’re buying a cheap product, then that’s what you’re going to get!
Probiotic Pearls on the other hand are coated with a special patented coating that lets them slowly release their bacteria as they travel through the small and large intestines. Plus they contain 8 strains of good bacteria at the right amounts for intestinal health. This means you only have to take 1 capsule a day!
With so many products on the market, it can be hard to pick which one to buy. You don’t want to just choose one because it’s the cheapest. Even if it’s the same price as another product, you need to look at how much bacteria you’re getting with each dose. You’re not going to get the same product for the same price elsewhere!
You also don’t want to just choose one because it’s the most expensive. You want to make sure you’re actually getting what you’re paying for! With some of the more popular products, it’s likely that their quantity isn’t actually what it says. Probiotic Pearls are independently tested and verified so you know exactly what’s in each capsule. Don’t be fooled by imitators!
Some people think that taking a cheap product that only has 1 or 2 strains and a low amount of bacteria is going to work fine for them. These people don’t realize that their intestines are going to develop immunity to whatever bacteria they’re taking over time.
